Cotton Vagina: When Smoking Weed Makes Your Twat Dry As Hell

As a relatively frequent practitioner of what I call “stoney sex,” I’m all too familiar with the benefits (heightened sensations!) and bummers (kissing with cottonmouth!) of smoking weed before fucking.

10 Blog Post Ideas I’ve Had While High And Never Followed Through On (Plus, A Poll!)

One of the benefits of smoking weed for me is that being stoned gives me really kind of fantastic blog post ideas. (There are obviously some terrible ideas too, but let’s not discuss those.)

What Your Stoned Paranoia Says About You & How To Deal With It So You Can Just Enjoy Being High

It’s true what they say: smoking weed can make you paranoid. Not everyone experiences an anxiety spiral when they smoke, but getting high does produce a heightened feeling of awareness — of yourself, of others, and of how others see you.

Dating is hard enough, but imagine being a marijuana smoker trying to find love in a country that still, by and large, criminalizes their favorite herbal remedy. All you want is to find a like-toking pothead with a Volcano and a dealer on speed dial, but alas, your OKCupid matches are hit-or-miss. That seemingly cool…

Nancy Grace Tells Weed Advocate He’s “Obviously Stoned”

Bethenny Frankel, Genius, Is Making Pot That Won’t Give You Munchies

The greatest struggle in my life is the desire to not eat after 9:00 p.m. (as recommended by nutritionists, doctors, and that one ex-boyfriend who dumped me for “having the penchant to become chubby one day”) — a healthy life habit that is a complete antithesis to my other healthy life habit: smoking a j…

It was just another day at high school in Arnold, Maryland when one little pot brownie changed the game.

Grandmas Smoke Weed, Play “Cards Against Humanity For The First Time

This video of three grandmothers smoking marijuana for the first time (they live in Washington state, where it’s legal)  and then playing a very stoned game of “Cards Against Humanity” is basically proof that all grandmas should try smoking marijuana because they are adorable and hilarious and relaxed and super jazzed about chips.

What comes to mind when you picture someone who uses marijuana?

Voting Results On Ballot Measures Shows There’s Still Hope For This Country

So Republicans now control the House and the Senate, and they defeated Democratic gubernatorial candidates in Maryland, Maine, Massachussetts, and (sigh) Illinois, and so control the majority of gubernatorial offices in the U.S. Don’t freak out too much; let’s be honest, politicians’ inability to care about their constituencies knows no political party.
